Quick! Make another mug Sam,so we can do this again!HiHo!

There's a fun place in Downtown L.A. - Sam's Hofbrau that could use a mug update.

I vote for that!

The missus and I were able to stop by for a bit. ST actually got a picture of her getting a print signed!

Hey! Any chance you can send me the real file?
The mugs are awesome. Our food was fine, and the drinks were good. The zombie was strong. I highly recommend the ribs from the appetizer menu. Very tasty!

Well, I missed most of you noodle heads when I got there at 11:30 after attending a wedding in Newport Beach. I had a wonderful time chatting with tiki heads who were still there, meeting Mr. Sam and chatting with the manager of sams. I love sams, I don't know what everyone is complaining about in the other thread, sams is back and I am VERY EXCITED!!!!!!!

OMG! I'm on Instagram!

Tiki Tuesdays for sure.

I just want to say that I had a GREAT time at Sam's and at Tiki Farm. It was a genuine pleasure to meet so many TC friends there! I've not been to California since '86, but everyone made me feel so welcomed that I can't wait to return. To be honest, it was like the feeling I get when I return home to Detroit to see my close family members there. I won't attempt to mention everyone because I'm afraid I'll forget someone or leave out a name.... there's a price to pay when working around oil based paints, you know! (Just ask Kelly - I was doing well to put the correct year on her mug! )

Thanks also to Holden - he has more cool than..... well, the Dude Abides! I had a great time at the Farm too. Holden - you're a first class guy.

As for Sam's, the food was excellent and the night was one I'll never forget. They bent over backwards to make me feel welcomed and did a fine job (to say the very least). Thanks, Sam and Samantha! It was a pleasure to meet you and simply to be a part of what you are doing there.

By the way, I met Bamboo Ben's mom while I was in Huntington Beach. She has all the charm and kindness of a million grandmas in one. I could have talked to her all day. She took this pic.....

Hey Al and Ben - Sorry I missed ya's. I'll catch you the next time around! I promise it won't be long.
